It may not have the same slimness or Stephen King-inspiring abilities of the new-and-improved Kindle 2, but those looking for a bit of a bargain, or those simply fond of the quirkiness of the original Kindle, can now take their pick from a number of used original Kindles that are finally starting to crop up at decidedly more reasonable prices. Judging from Amazon's own used listings, it seems that $275 is the new average starting price for one in "very good" or "like new" condition, with a whole slew more available in the $300 range, which is a far cry from the $400+ prices some were fetching in the lead up to the Kindle 2.
